Benefits of Giving through DCCF

Community Leadership

Sometimes, community issues arise that no one organization can tackle on its own. We try to connect people and help them work together to make progress on common goals.

For example, we played a leading role in the start-up of the LiveWell Lawrence coalition, which has worked since 2008 to turn around rising rates of lifestyle-related chronic disease in Douglas County. Today, LiveWell is an active coalition of 150 members working in schools, workplaces, neighborhoods and public spaces to make it easier for people to eat healthy foods, be physically active, and live tobacco-free.

If you are concerned about a community issue or see an opportunity for positive change, please contact our professional staff. We will do our best to connect you to people and resources that will help you make progress toward your goal.
